Why I give away my music for free
The current socio-economic system of this world is a mess. It perpetuates profit-seeking, power over others and inequality. In the process we are destroying the earth. Humans need to evolve from their ego-based mindset – otherwise we will perish.
I believe it’s in our nature to share with others. I believe we can create a better world in which we free our minds and our creativity. But I can’t just sit around waiting for other people to start changing things. We all need to do our part to create a better tomorrow. My humble contribution is to share my music. Hopefully I will inspire someone else to share as well. I believe in a future world in which everything is free and were we use our energy to co-create our existance instead competing with each other.
I try to live my life along the lines of the following teachings: “Be the change you want to see in the world” and “Don’t die with your music still in you“. Thus, I pass on what has been given to me – my passion for making music.
